********************************
Cops Who Killed Kimani Gray
Focus Of 5 Prior Federal Civil Rights Lawsuits

Another stolen Black life! Sixteen year old, African-American Kimani Gray
was mortally wounded after 7 of the 11 bullets fired entered his body both
the front and the back. The murderous shots were fired by Sergeant
Mourad and Officer Jovaniel Cordova, who had already racked up five
civil rights violations in federal lawsuits. Both Mourad and Cordova were
accused of exploiting the âstop-and-friskâ tactic and going outside the
confines of the law to hide their involvement. Building Bridges reports
from the scene, Brooklynâs east Flatbush section where there has been
more than a week of community protests following the latest death of a
Black teen, resulting from the policies and practices by the NYPD in
communities of color.
*******************
McDonaldâs Abuse Of Student Guest Workers Stirs Protest

Latin American and Asian student guest workers participating in the U.S. State
Departmentâs J-1 program, expected decent work and a meaningful cultural
exchange here. Instead, they were sent to work at McDonaldâs, who paid them
below-minimum wage and when they complained of the exploitation were
subject to retaliation. They went on strike against the central Pennsylvania
stores where they worked. Then they came to the NYâs Times Square
McDonaldâs with supporters from UnitedNY and the Retail Action Project to
protest and announce their plans to take their protest directly to McDonaldâs
headquarters and the home of CEO Don Thompson if McDonaldâs doesnât
take responsibility for ending labor abuses for all its workers.
